Pay it Forward

I know its always hard to figure out how to give through your lack. This is the great thing about the Christmas season, people give anyway.
There are two ways you can help live beyond yourself: go to her website and purchase products from that site and 25 percent of your purchase will help me in my internship with personal expenses and helping me go on my next two missions trip next year to Africa and Central America in 2011.

You can donate to glad Tidings Church ( (put Lisa Holcomb Africa missions trip) in the memo box to place a tax deductible donation toward the missions trip(s).

Thirdly: go to and purchase a ticket for our concert featuring Tommy Walker! The concert is on December 3rd and you can only buy the tickets online. All the proceeds are going toward the Africa Missions Trip.

Lastly: go to my website and purchase items for Christmas. It will help me out a lot business wise and you get to have cute items.

You cal always to go if you want to purchase through there.

If none of these things appeal to you and you just want to give a gift card for the grocery store and call it a day, I won't stop you either.

Three ways to live beyond yourself, three ways to help me do the same.

Thanks everyone.

Where are You!!!!!???

I know this has been the question of the summer!! Where did L.D. go?? There have been NO posts for like...ever!! Shock! I know you have all been devastated. Well, my summer has been all kinds of full all kinds of changes going on and took a trip that changed my life. I went on a trip to Nicaragua. No I did not go there to hang with the elite and fly to Costa Rica then off to Belize. I spent ten days in Managua Nicaragua on a missions trip with an amazing organization called The Convoy of Hope.   While there my church traveled the city of Managua and some outside rural areas, went to schools and churches and preformed plays, sang songs, had puppet shows and showed them the love that Jesus bestowed upon us. I can't forget the people of Managua. I will have photos up soon of my trip.

 Fret not L.D. is back. And btw, I have all the spring accessories 50% off. If you would like to pay full price: I'll make sure that the 50% goes to the convoy of hope so they can continue the work that they do.

Summer tIIiiiiimmmeeeeee.......

Maybe the livin' is easy somewhere....this may come as a shocker to you but people don't tend to wear knits in the summer. I'm still trying to figure out this phenomena. But here is the magic of living in micro climates....seasons are not seasons as we would expect them to be. It's foggy in the morning, warm at 10 AM, breezy by for and then the thick cloak of fog comes back in the evening-most days. This climate can decide to be witty and have no clouds (YES!) in the sky for days and be as lovely as Audry Hepburn in "Funny Face" . So basically what I'm saying here is that there is never any time of year where you can't wear knits....even as accessories.
Let me show you: 

Fun, sparkly, smushy (very technical word, mind you), and chic. These can be worn all year round when you have than itch for knits but not the budget for a bolero or a cashmere cardigan. 

Next item....

 Hair pins, lapel pins, hat pins!  Fun felt flowers for fantastic flirty frocks! These can be worn all year around as well as not cause you to have a heat stroke (you're too cute for that). These felt roses are always beautiful and remind me of being in the Golden Gate Park rose garden. That's my idea of a good time! I know you're thinking "L.D. you need to get out more..."   

 Here is another example of a fun hat pin if you're not a flower fan AND a hat. I know that you are wondering WHY did you pull out a hat?! It's almost summer and I've hidden all things winter until October (pump fist in air)! Well this is a a hat(let). It just sits on the crown of your head and looks cute.
 Some days in the summer  it takes everything in you to throw on a pair of pants and a shirt to grab caffeine at your local cafe or Starbucks. With this you can toss your hair in a messy bun or pony take slap on a hat and look like your Paris Chic all by yourself. Options people....options!   

Now we can always go with the basic never failing throwback that always comes through at the end....your bias knit hand painted cotton and Rayon tape DO have one right? 

This scarf (yes I used the word scarf...people really do wear them all year around) is light as a feather, painted like a rainbow and is simply delicate and perfect for warmer weather. It's one of my personal favorite items to wear in this micro climate known as San Francisco and believe every woman needs one.

Well ladies I hope we have learned an important lesson today! Just like the sun rises in the east, knits CAN be worn ALL year around! 
I rest my case. 

Curious where to get these items ? Make sure you hit up 
(San Francisco Scarf (shown above)  is currently a Special order item, please email directly for pricing information)

This was just interesting, I had to share it with you all...

Wear milk if you can't drink it (Milk Yarn)

Submitted by : By TE Online on November 12, 2008 6:39 AM
milk1.jpgFrom childhood, we had been hearing that milk is good for health and our daily food menu should include it. Despite its being healthy, there are many people who do not like to drink milk. Now these people can well relieve themselves by not drinking milk and even then getting all of its benefits. Now they can wear the benefits of milk! Yes, in the form of milk fabrics made from milk yarns. Its amazing, isn't it?
The Eco- Friendly Milk Yarn
Milk Yarn is made from milk protein fibers. To make it, milk is first dewatered, i.e. all the water content is taken out from it and then it is skimmed. New bio-engineering technique is then applied to make a protein spinning fluid. This fluid is suitable for wet spinning process through which the final high-grade textile fiber is made. While spinning, a solvent is used by most of the manufacturers and micro-zinc ion is embedded in the fiber which gives it the characteristics of being bacteriostatic and durable. It combines the advantages of both, natural as well as synthetic fibers.

milk_fiber.jpgMilk protein fiber is a kind of fresh fiber that has very healthy functions. It contains eighteen amino-acids, that are beneficial to human health. It can be spun alone or with cashmere, silk, spun silk, cotton, wool, ramie and other fibers to make fabrics. The fabrics made of these fibers nourish and take care of skin in a very efficient manner by keeping away allergies and even wrinkles. The fabrics made from milk yarn are primarily used in manufacturing kidswear, top-grade underwear, shirts, T shirts, loungewear, etc.

Characteristics of Milk Yarn
The milk yarn has got many properties that are enough to make it one of the most sought after fabrics of the future.
- The natural protein humectant factor is present in the milk fiber, which makes skin more delicate and smooth. As such Fabrics made of milk yarns are suitable for household textiles.
- The amino acids present in the fiber make it antibacterial and antifungal.
- It is glossy and luxurious in appearance, feel and comfortability, just like silk.
- It has many beneficial chemical properties such as moderated fiber breaking tenacity and modulus,etc.
- It is hygroscopic in nature, as such it absorbs moisture very well.
- It is very easy to dye and can be dyed under normal temperature.
- It has the property of color fastness.
- It can be blended well with other fibers such as cotton, modal, tencel and bamboo etc.
Although its association with milk itself certifies that milk fiber is a naturally healthy fiber yet for authentication beyond doubt, it has been granted the International Ecological Textile Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Authentication in April,2004

Milk Fiber Blended with Other Fibers
milk-shirt.jpgWe now know that milk fiber can be blended with many other fibers like cotton, cashmere, silk etc. When milk fiber is combined with these fibers, the resultant fabric gets different qualities adopted from different fibers but one common quality that is retained in all the blends is that of its being a healthy and eco-friendly fiber.
Milk Fiber blended with silk, bamboo fiber- the Cool Fiber: This blended fiber is moisture retentive, sweat conductive, comfortable and ventilative which gives it the property of coolness. It is soft and smooth with an attractive gloss, reflecting elegance in the personality of the wearer- and it is healthy.
Milk Fiber blended with mercerized wool, cashmere- the Thermal Protective Fiber: Milk protein fiber has a kind of three-dimensional and multigap structure. With its properties of light weight and high moisture absorption, the milk fiber when blended with wool and warm cashmere, becomes highly cold proof material- and it is comfortable and healthy too.
Milk Fiber blended with cotton,cashmere- for top grade under clothings: The milk protein contains plenty of amino acid and natural wet protecting genes. It is capable of restricting fungus too. The natural fibers, cotton and cashmere too have more or less similar qualities and when blended with milk fiber, the properties are enhanced to make comfortable, healthy and well fitted under wears.
Milk Fiber blended with cotton, silk- for home textile: Milk Fiber regulates air quality and when mixed with cotton or silk it also adopts the qualities of comfortability, durability and elegance making it perfect for home furnishings.
In fact, the fabrics made of milk protein fibers are so skin friendly that the dream of many about taking milk bath can come true now. This was one thing, which, only Cleopatra could have done to enhance her beauty and now that can be done by any average person, thanks to the astonishing milk yarn.
